  • Context (TH): The Logistics Ease Across Different States (LEADS) 2023 report was released by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
  • LEADS is an indigenous data-driven index to assess logistics infrastructure, services, and human resources across all States and UTs.
  • The 1st report was launched in 2018 and is published annually (except in 2020 due to COVID).
  • It is conceived on the lines of the Logistics Performance Index of WB.
  • While the LPI relies entirely on perception-based surveys, LEADS incorporates both perception as well as objectivity thereby enhancing the robustness and comprehensiveness of this exercise.
  • Objective: It ranks States and UTs on the efficiency of their logistics ecosystem, highlights the key logistics-related challenges faced by the stakeholders and includes suggestive recommendations.
  • Methodology: The survey processes the data received from stakeholders (perception data) and States/ UTs (objective data) and ranks the logistics ecosystem of each State/ UT using a statistical model.
